Who Are Those Guys? ~ Pierre Cressoy


Pierre Jules Lazare Cresson better known as Pierre Cressoy was born in Vendôme, Loir-et-Cher, France on March 25, 1924. He studied to be a doctor at the college of Henry IV as a favor to his father but left after a year to pursue his dream of becoming an actor. He made his theater debut in 1944 in the play “Andromaque” in Racine. His first film appearance was in the 1948 film “La dernière chevauchée”. He also appeared in Cecil B. De Mille’s 1952 Hollywood production of “The Greatest Show on Earth.” He acted under the pseudonyms Peter Cabot and Peter Cross in most of his European westerns. His most famous appearance for the Spaghetti Western fan was as the evil Doctor Chester Lynne in “Navajo Joe”. He died of cancer on October 31, 1980 in Gorbio, Alpes-Maritimes, France.
